Ishaawin (Ojiibway for The Way) was established in 1991 by Arrowhead Foundation as an outreach ministry project to Aboriginals in and around Thunder Bay offering Christian counseling. In 2009 the Arrowhead Board of Directors sought to transfer the ownership and direction of Ishaawin to a like minded Aboriginal ministry. As of January 1, 2011, Ishaawin Family Resources became a division of Rising Above Abuse Counseling Agency.
Rising Above Abuse Counselling Agency
is a registered charity in the province of Ontario being led by a First Nations Board of Directors.
